Chavez Nomination

NPR's Brian Naylor reports on trouble facing the nomination of Linda Chavez to be George W. Bush's Secretary of Labor. The nomination has run into some problems following the revelation that an illegal immigrant lived in Chavez's house for a period of time and apparently did some work for her. Opponents of the Chavez nomination point to similarities to Zoe Baird, President Clinton's first choice for attorney general, whose name was withdrawn after it was revealed she had what is now known as a "nanny problem."
